CURATOR SHOWS SNUFF BOTTLES WITH EROTIC DESIGNS AT SHANGHAI SEX MUSEUM

Image #: 212558 Liu Dalin, sexoligist and curator of Shanghai Sex Museum, shows snuff bottles with erotic designs dating back to the late Qing Dynasty (late 19th century) displayed at the museum in China’s commercial capital, June 3, 2003. Shanghai is rediscovering its uninhibited past thanks to more than a decade of growth and liberalisation. In a country where sex is still rarely discussed in the open, Shanghai stands apart by running a government-sanctioned sex hotline, sex museum and tolerating the screening of often racier cinema and music fare than other cities would permit.
